Mascot Distiller 2.7 released

We are pleased to announce the release of Mascot Distiller 2.7. The most important change is that it is no longer necessary to ‘re-grid’ spectra if the mass values of the data points do not represent a continuous, linear mass scale. This makes peak picking very much faster for compressed profile data, where baseline data points have been discarded, and avoids the possibility of distorting peaks by specifying a mass scale that is too coarse.

You can download Mascot Distiller from a link on the support page. If you wish to evaluate Mascot Distiller, send an email request to for a product key that can be registered on-line to obtain a 30 day licence. Without a licence, Distiller operates in viewer mode.
